MOSCOW, June 22 (Itar-Tass) - President Dmitry Medvedev has assigned Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov to step up work for suppressing terrorist manifestations in the republic. Medvedev assured that the authorities would respond in a tough way to the attempt on the life of Ingush President Yunus-Bek Yevkurov.
“A crime was staged today – an attempt on the life of the President of Ingushetia. This is certainly the result of the work being done by the president of your neighbouring republic – a friendly, fraternal republic -- for establishing order and destroying gangsters,” Medvedev said at a meeting with Ramzan Kadyrov in Moscow.
“I think the work should be continued, so that those who take such actions will realise that the response will be direct and tough,” the Russian President stressed.
